Went last year on Liberty of the Sea and had a fabulous time so we wanted to go on another cruise with Royal Caribbean again. The ship is new, clean, gorgeous art work, delicious food, wonderful personnel who always were helpful. Our waiter Anoop and his assistant Carlos were great, and the head waiter Isabel was helpful beyond belief. Isabel came to my table every night to help me plan low sodium dinners for the next night. We had dynamic dining, and all the food was terrific and the 4 restaurants were gorgeous. The art on the ship was spectacular.

My husband did a lot of research of the ports we would be visiting, and we had been to Cozumel previously, but I didn't know too much about the history of the ports, but I did know Haiti has been having a lot of problems recovering from their recent hurricane. I just went off the ship and we looked around, bought some things for my granddaughter, and enjoyed the scenery.

Oh, yes, the ship was wonderful, we never felt it rocking, and even the elevators seemed like they weren't moving. I didn't have to take any medicine for seasickness, which is very important. We all enjoyed the trivia on the ship, although there were so many activities that conflicted with dinner, trivia, and shows, Will you consider having bridge instruction in the future? We love the Cruise Compass Brochure, and the morning show with Drew Pavlov and his friend were also helpful. We would have wanted more TV shows, and I noticed that the some of my favorite shows were on but they were in Spanish.

Cabin Review

Studio Interior Stateroom with Virtual View

Cabin SI

Very nice, very cozy, plenty of storage for our clothes. I liked the bracelet key. Steward was very nice, got us cold water and ice every day. Steward (Chatham) was very pleasant.. But we would have liked more tv shows because the ones we watched one night seemed to be the same show every night. And there were too many shows in Spanish. I love the way we could fit so much in the room, and Chatham kept the room spotless. I wasn't too happy with the pillows because they were a little too hard.

Port Reviews

Bayonne (Cape Liberty)

Boarding ship was quick and easy.


We took a trolley ride which was convenient and free.

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

We rented a golf cart and rode around the island. Very good accomodations, bathrooms and shopping. Walked along the beach.


Took a private car around the island. Very pretty.

Costa Maya

Very nice scenery.


We learned how to make chocolate, we learned about tequila, and we had a very nice ethnic meal with beans, rice, corn, and we were served delicious virgin margaritas.
